I've been coming here for over 30 years. Food always good. Service and atmosphere good too. Free internet and they don't mind my son and I having a pint and using our laptops. Seamus still behind the bar and always polite and friendly. Young staff excellent too and watch and anticipate your needs

Popped in a few times during our annual trip back to Castlewellan. Shamus was still working the bar and the Guinness is as good as ever! The place was just being painted outside and is looking very smart.

The ensuite was very good,the shower powerful and very hot water. Although...
